The penultimate weekend of Bunbury Basketball Association competition for 2018 will be split across Bunbury and Dunsborough.

Top spot in the A-women competition is almost locked away, with Tornadoes Black having opened up a 10-point lead over equal second-placed sides Dunsborough and Tornadoes Red, who both have won four of their nine matches.

A big component of Black’s dominance this season has been their ability to put points up in bunches.

During Friday’s 63-48 victory over Aces Sky, the league leaders bolted out to an early 14-4 lead, with the margin inflating further as the game wore on.

Even with the match in their keeping, they managed to express themselves offensively, with three players – Javene Fitch, Ebony Bilcich and Cian Parsons – all putting up double figures.

Black travel to the Naturaliste Community Centre tonight and face the Oilers, who have pushed them hard in all three clashes so far this season.

Should the Oilers lose, Black’s sister side Tornadoes Red can capitalise with victory over bottom- placed Aces Sky.

In A-men action, the reigning premier Bulls host a stuttering Tornadoes Red, who have only recorded one victory in their last four games.

Tornadoes Black, who are only four points adrift of the Bulls, travel to Dunsborough on tomorrow night to face an in-form Oilers who are building momentum.

Aces Sky host brother side Aces White in the remaining game.
